    I just bought a 4-pack of each. And drank one of each. Now I'm on my second double bock. I had no idea what a "double bock" is. Never heard of more than a regular bock.

    I like a lot of different beers. And I have yet to find a Sam Adams that I don't like.

    They are acceptable in the style. There are much better ones out there in the style that are just as much or cheaper though.

    Beer and fruit should not ever be mentioned in the same sentence.


    The only Sam Adams beers I never cared for were the cream stout and Scottish Ale.

    I'm a fan of many beers, but this is one I just can't bring myself to drink. I've even tried on multiple occasions, but it's a no-go for me.

    Anybody likes good beer, Victory V-12, 12% ABV, made in Brooklyn, finest version of Belgian ale I've tasted. It's a Chimay Blue killer. Couple bucks cheaper, couple points stronger, and considerably tastier. comes in 750ml corked bottles @ 7.99 each.

    I'm serious as a heart attack, it ages well and drinks fresh well. Not that much hops, but a lot of deep malt and enough dry hops to make it a tangy clean aftertaste. It does NOT TASTE STRONG.. you were warned.

    And don't expect to drink one and dance, much less drive.

    That "sissy" beer is called lambic beer - i.e, Lindeman's raspberry framboise. It's quite good....if you are a woman or a "very feminine" man:rofl:

    Victory is brewed in Downington PA, I swear I corrected you the last time V-12 was brought up.
    By far my favorite brewery, they don't make a bad beer.

    I pretty much only drink imperials and the SA imperial is a middle of the road effort for the style, and way overpriced for what it is. Much better can be had without marketing overhead in the price tag.
